Bring a Potluck Dish and be prepared to share how your disciple's walk is going. What have you experienced with God's Guidance?
For more information, call 970-261-7893.
PLEASE LET THE EMMAUS MEMBERS OF YOUR CHURCH KNOW ABOUT THIS.
NOT EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE ON THE LIST.
IF POSSIBLE, BRING AN UPDATED LIST OF YOUR CHURCH'S EMMAUS MEMBERS.
Next Board Meeting will be Saturday, February 25 at Delta United Methodist Church, at 3 PM.
Welcome our newest Board members Rev. Laura Cartwright, Aneta and Garey Martinez.
We still have at least three vacancies on the Board. If you have served on the Walks in both support and the conference room, please prayerfully consider serving on the board. WRE needs YOU! Please contact any of the Board members if you are willing to serve.
We had our first training on January 21st and what a joyous time it was! Pastor Steve assisted by Reverend Laura led us in communion. The conference room and support teams began their initial training. It’s not too late to participate – the support teams would love to have you join them in serving the pilgrims. Next training is February 25 at the Delta United Methodist Church with the final training March 25 at Redlands United Methodist Church.

Are YOU involved in a reunion group? The Walk to Emmaus is a 4th day movement. Stay connected with others by being active in a reunion group. Don’t have one? Call someone in the Emmaus community or start one yourself.
Community potlucks are another way to stay connected and meet new people in WRE. Check with your community to see when and where potlucks are held.
Please pray for the 2017 Walks. We had to cancel the Men’s Walk last year. Pray for Emmaus throughout the world, your WRE, the Board, the leaders, the conference room team and the support team. Pray for people you are considering sponsoring as pilgrims. If you need help about sponsorship, contact any of the WRE board members. Will YOU serve on a Walk? Sponsor someone? Serve on the Board? Make agape?
Giving up a latte a week per year = $150, the cost of participating on a Walk. Have your reunion group and/or local gathering set out an envelope for donations. Scholarships help pilgrims and team member participate. No one should be turned away because of financial constraints.
2017 Walks: Men, April 20-April 23 Women, April 27-April 30

The website can be a great resource for people interested in or curious about the Walk to Emmaus. Check out the informational video. Use it as a tool to help YOU sponsor someone. We strongly urge that everyone in the WRE Community prayerfully consider sponsoring pilgrims, not just folks serving on the Walks or on the Board.
We have an official non-profit tax ID now for people to make charitable donations.
If you have any of the manuals for the various support team positions, please make sure we have them at the January 2017 team training (date TBD).
